The men who formed our countries were Christian men. They were not perfect but they all specifically talked about religion in the founding principals of our country because they wanted people of this country to have the freedom to have a Christian belief and worship in a denomination of their own choosing. They did not want the government to tell people how they were to worship and what denomination they would be affiliated with. They did NOT want there to be a total separation of church and state where even the Christian principals of faith could not be followed in government. This is preposterous. George Washington himself said "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible"
His Prayer At Valley Forge "Almighty and eternal Lord God, the great Creator of heaven and earth, and the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; look down from heaven in pity and compassion upon me Thy servant, who humbly prorate myself before Thee."
"Bless O Lord the whole race of mankind, and let the world be filled with the knowledge of Thee and Thy Son, Jesus. "Of all dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens."
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religion but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We shall not fight alone. God presides over the destinies of nations."
President Thomas Jefferson
I have heard people justifying things they do by saying: "We are all free men protected by the constitution".....our founding fathers would roll over in their graves knowing how the constitution they fought so hard to uphold being stretched and skewed the way it is.....
The ten commandments taken out of any government building because it's from the bible? No nativity set in/on Government property (even if 99% of the people want that)?
Why is it that Muslim kids in school get a place to say their prayers but a Christian child cannot even bring their bible to school?
As soon as you lose religious principals - you lose control of the country....just look at the public school to show you what can happen. Now many of the teachers in our schools are liberals and are "dumbing down" our kids so they can't think for themselves. They are trying to get the kids to accept all the liberal thinking and most of what they teach is a big lie. It's amazing when you ask kids what they are learning. They are spreading their Marxist views right under our noses.
